What is an ?¿ intertextual-fugue ?¿
When we were children curious and free, we’d learn by mimicking what we see; sometimes it was frustrating and we’d jump and scream ’til we finally figured out what it really did mean; so maybe the planet and its people too, are in a cognitive-dissonance and just don’t know what to do; ’til they do, when they become heart-centred again, that’ll be the day for celebration then…
ComiX are ephemeral and topical, however, what comes around, goes around — we humans are on the brink of falling-fatal to a heartless machine, doing our ‘duty’ as an ordinary-drone has-been — or we can be rising-rapture’d in an organic-mutation within a few natural generations – then we’d speak in light’s language of shadow sculpting time, moving to a music which only the heart can hear, simply-sublime, risen from the slime, dancing without any fear.
So the point-of-view is the field of possibility. What would ‘objective’ Art look like? — ?¿Art-officially; it seems to me that there are two forms of Art. Objective Art and Subjective Art. Subjective Art comes in 3 flavours, generally, i.e., Intellectual, Emotional, and Physico/Instinctual. A quick example of each would be Picasso’s Instinctual works, the Expressionists emotive works, and the Intellectual forms of the so called minimalist Post-Modern Art. Of course there are various blending of these ‘subjective-types’ which speaks to each of us on the level of our personal character, our relative perspectives and, to paraphrase Nietzche, all of our bad-education; hence the like/dislike quality of subjective art works.
With Objective art, like the Gothic Cathedrals of old, the Pyramids, and music such as Beethoven’s 5th Symphony or Mozart’s 40th, 41st and 42nd symphonies, each and every one has a similar experience. Lifting us up, out of our personal time/space habit patterns; lifting us in awe to the greater nature of life, like wings of wonder flying through the vast cloud-of-unknowing that is this sentimental-reality. So it is that Nature reflected in Art, seems to move us beyond our tunnel-vision, while the subjective forms tend to chain us to our comfortable habits of seeing and hearing, or that they provide us a temporary diversion from our methodically-inauthentic machinations at best.
Poetry (and I agree that ComiX are a form of Poetic representation) often reflects these ‘small’ miracles in our everyday struggle. Like most Art, it is subjective and produces few Saints. Art as a Language can speak to us within but without any reason, and often sings of a Love that cannot be named, in a music that only the Heart can hear. However, it is like having a ‘Myth’ which is like having a ‘Map!’ The Artist can share these ‘stories’ of her ‘Map Quest’, her experiences, and somehow in the sharing, we the readers and perhaps the Artist herself, are renewed! Nevertheless, ?’knowing’ is like these Maps, but it’s really not the Territory, that cloud-of-unknowing we’re presently ‘wondering’ through…
In summary, tl:dr, ‘we don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are, and if we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change’ — and that’s what these Poets of possibility arouse in their Art. It’s why I read Poetry and Comix; or as Novalis averred, “We read Poetry (or ComiX) to heal the wounds that reason makes.”
